Former Australian V8 Supercar racer Renee Gracie has quit motorsports and switched to the adult film industry. Renee Gracie was the first woman to compete full time in V8 supercars. However, she cannot pursue her career in motorsports any further due to financial instability.

The 25-year-old opened up in a recent interview about her decision of switching to pornography to earn money and financial stability. “It has been the best thing I have done in my whole life. It has put me in a financial position I could never have dreamt of and I really enjoy it,” said she.

“I pretty much do everything. I do whatever it is people request. I sell those photos and people tip me,” Gracie was quoted as saying by The Daily Telegraph.

“I have been able to pay for a house. I have a 30-year loan that I am about to pay off in 12 months.
She also closed doors on a possible return to racing in the future as according to her, she realised she wasn’t good enough for the circuit.

“I got over it (racing) and realised I wasn’t good enough and moved on,” she added. “I have no interest in going back. Racing cars in my eyes is not the pinnacle of what I have done. What I am doing right now, I would rather do than race around Bathurst.”

According to reports, Renee Gracie shared nude images of herself on a subscription-based website, which ended her financial problems.

There was an increase of over 5000 people in Gracie’s fan site after her interview went public. Currently, she is raking over $90,000 every month now by selling her videos and pictures on a adult subscription website.

I didn’t go into this blind. I mean I had no idea it would be where it is today, but I did a lot of research before I did it. I understood what was involved.

“I knew things would be leaked, I knew it would be controversial, I knew all of that. I did all the research and made the decision to do it.
